3057 brake lamp in 06 GC?

I have an 06 Grand Cherokee Limited. I had an issue where one or the other of the brake lamps wouldn't light, nor would the 3rd light usually function. I decided to switch the light socket between the 2 brake lights, and the problem followed the socket. Upon examination, the non-lighting socket had a 3157 lamp in it. I had a pack of those, and none worked. I happened to also have a 3057 lamp, tried it, and now everything now works.

The books call out a 3157. Why would I require a 3057 to make it work? And is there a problem doing that?

Thanks in advance!!
