The resurrection conveys hope in God. [This is not] the “hope” that promises a reward in heaven in order to ease the pain of injustice on earth. Rather it is the hope which focuses on the future in order to make us refuse to tolerate present inequities.

-James H. Cone, A Black Theology of Liberation
