Yes it is the same Rahab. By God's grace she was in the Messianic line

“To Salmon was born Boaz by Rahab.” A man named Salmon married a Canaanite woman, really a pagan woman by the name of Rahab. Rahab was a prostitute who ran a brothel in Jericho. If you read carefully the account of Joshua chapter 2, you will read about Rahab who came to believe in the true God and hid the spies who were spying out Jericho. But she was a prostitute by profession and yet she is included in the Messianic line. She is given the privilege of giving birth to Boaz who is a really a pattern of the redeemer himself.

There is a good article about this at the below link:

I find it noteworthy that the physical messianic line has been disregarded by God to nullify any pride, status or reason for boasting which is so readily exercised. The line that is maintained is the line of faith irrespective of wether it is of the 'seed' of Abraham or that of gender or that of profession.
Jesus confirms this sentiment in his statement to the crowd when in a crowded house he was told that his mother and brothers were outside wanting his attention.
