The Internet Archive has PDF scans openly available for each of the first three volumes of Hermann Strack and Paul Billerbeck’s Kommentar zum Neuen Testament aus Talmud und Midrasch, 6 vols. (München: Beck, 1922–1961):1

In addition, there is also a combined PDF that includes vols. 1–3 and2

Each of the files is reasonably large (75.7–134 MB). So, they may take some time to load on slower connections or browsers.

For context, the latter three essays are introduced by the additional entry “The Languages Of First-Century Palestine: An Introduction To Three Papers.”
