Because people from many background and life style they get enlightened. It will reflect in their enlightenment also. So, it is the difference. Once enlightened means, they will taste the same quality only. But, their way of putting it in to words is different. It depends upon their upbringing, education, so many things. Some people use very rustic words and Some people more eloquent words.

The difference is between the minds, not the enlightened

Enlightenment is simply the cessation of the identification with the body and mind. Leave God out of that, it's really irrelevant. These body and mind vehicles are still being used after enlightenment but there is no one to identify with them. These old vehicles of the enlightened ones are still different and you still mistake them for the enlightened :-)

There is no difference at all. It is our understanding that is different.
They are all united in truth. Unless you reach that stage you see differences.
Truth cannot be expressed. It is experienced. They express their feelings according to their times, places, circumstances, etc.
For your information one does not need to be educated in worldly sense, to be enlightened. Even the illiterate can achieve it.

An enlightened person is not

An enlightened person is not God more than you are. You don't need to be enlightened to realize this.
