There was no torture, show me any passage in which Jesus was crying or groaning in pain and agony while on the cross. There were real incidents in which our body endorphins null the pain of sufferers in an accident. It is like giving a jab of morphine. There was a case in which the victim's leg was detached in an accident without him knowing or feeling any pain. I do not know for sure if endorphins worked on Jesus but I do know that there is no mention of pain or agony when Jesus was flogged or crucified. The only claim that I can say is that Jesus did suffered the flogging and crucifixion but not the torture.

The cross is a symbol of between earth and heaven and with Jesus in the centre as an "in-between" who will judge who goes to heaven and who goes to hell, "No one goes to the Father except through Him". I don't think God will want His people to go through the torture. He wants His people to experience the suffering so as to built character of resilience and perseverance against evil and evildoers as in the case of Jesus. Such resilience and perseverance built faith and righteousness and the love of God in the believers so that "whoever persevere will be saved".
May God help us to persevere through our sufferings.
Ask and You shall receive,
Seek and You shall find,
Knock and the door will be open unto You.
