Jesus Tomb Authenticated???

This is very interesting: https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/11/jesus-tomb-archaeology-jerusalem-christianity-rome/

The story is, Constantine's sent people to discover and secure the then-believed location of Jesus burial and resurrection. While we can't say it's the authentic place, it is conceivable that it was still known, even some 300+ years after the Resurrection events. This was a relatively small place in which amazing things happened. Surely word-of-mouth tradition, by Constantine's time, would have long held where the tomb was supposed to have been - even if only vaguely. Today, we often talk of things during the American revolution and its events - so, the events of Christ would have only been another 100 years or so longer. So, it wouldn't surprise me that the location was still known.

Jesus's body was raised from death and taken away. So it cannot be the actual tomb. And why only now? This is just another ploy.

Jesus' body was resurrected from where? A TOMB - the location of which would have been widely known, and passed down generationally in the area. Many lived their entire lives in this area. It is quite conceivable that it's location was still known by Constantine's time.
