This expression refers to something said, written, etc that generates thought on the part of persons exposed to it or who become aware of it.

a thing which provokes thoughts. provoke means to cause by some sort of impetus, pushes to happen. Thoughts are what you get from thinking. So, thought-provoking is a way of saying "makes a person think (new thoughts)". Making a person repeat thoughts already made is not really thought-provoking. It is the idea of new thinking that is intended.
