It's said, according to the scriptures the Hebrews wrote about themselves, that one reason God commanded them to murder every single resident of Jericho was because they were all ~ every man, woman, child and baby of them ~ "sinners". Why don't the Hebrews tell the the story of the Abrahamic God revealing his "will", the concept of "sin", and Mosaic Law to the people of Jericho - the things that they'd failed to live up to which made them "sinners" - that warranted genocide as a punishment?

I dont thing there is one instance where God did not warn people before they were wiped out. Maybe there are stories in the bible of people being destroyed and the part about who preached and what was preached was omitted.

In the case of Jericho, Jewish history {and the bible], tells of prophets living and preaching among the inhabitants of Jericho. Two of these were Elijah and Elisha. Generally people are warned over the course of a generation or two, they are ignored and then action is taken.

Does this mean the ancient Hebrews were converting other non-Jewish erhnic groups or tribes to Judaism [so to speak]?

Not at all. I dont think any of the prophets sent to preach anywhere ever preached Judaism. The Law of Moses was for the Jews and there was a special reason for that.

In the case of Jonah and Ninevah, the message was about keeping away from sin and evil.... lies, murder, rape, worshipping of and sacrificing children to idols etc, and being kind to ones neighbour.

Prophets sent by God to surrounding nations, although Jews, did not preach keeping of the hundreds of laws and precepts listed in Leviticus and Deuteronomy. They were all basic commonsense guidelines for good living, much like what Jesus preached when he came.

What religions were spawned by this messaging by the Hebrews?

I dont know really, but 'none' would be my guess .. the same way the preaching of Jesus produced no religion. What this kind of preaching does is promote a lifestyle which if adhered to leads to eternal life in the Kingdom of God. Religion on the other hand leads to useless dogma and hypocrisy, [which Jesus encountered when he started his ministry among the Jews] and eventually to damnation.
