Quote du Jour: A Mystery?

This one mystifies me:

Jesus is the masterpiece. The thieves are minor works. Why are they there? Not to frame the crucifixion, as some innocent souls believe, but to hide it.
~ Roberto Bolano, 2666

Does anybody have any thoughts on what meaning it intends to convey? Clue: the discussion going on in the novel is about literature.
